    Very cool, Andy! ... Literally! Makes me think of Marines enduring the freezing temperatures at Chosin Reservoir.
    I was sort of thinking of Chosin Joe, I have a wonderful original photo of a Marine at Chosin breaking ice from a frozen puddle with a fixed bayonet, (it's another M.I.A. casualty of the house move for now though) wearing one of these. It made you feel cold just looking at it.
    Maybe I'll invest in 1940's version for one of my WW2 M1's, they are very inexpensive.
